Olympic silver medallist shuttler P.V. Sindhu has been handed a tough draw in women’s singles but debutant Sameer Verma will fancy his chances of making it to the men’s singles knockout stage at the BWF World Tour Finals starting here on Wednesday.

Sindhu, who had finished runner-up at the last edition in Dubai, has been clubbed with defending champion Akane Yamaguchi of Japan, World No. 1 Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei and United States’ Beiwen Zhang in Group A.

Sameer, who defended his title at the Syed Modi International last month to qualify for the $1,500,000 event at the last moment, has been put alongside Japanese World No. 1 Kento Momota, Indonesia’s Tommy Sugiarto and Thailand’s Kantaphon Wangcharoen.

The top two players from each group will qualify for the semifinals, after which a knockout draw will be conducted.

Only eight top players compete in the prestigious season-ending event.

Sindhu, who will be making her third successive appearance at the tournament, has a 9-4 head-to-head record against Yamaguchi but she has lost four times to the Japanese in five meetings this season.
